Parish History[edit | edit source]

NINEBANKS, a chapelry, in the parish of Allendale, union of Hexham, S. division of Tindale ward and of Northumberland, 10 miles (S. W.) from Haydon-Bridge. This place was the property of the Auckland family, of whose mansion a tower is still remaining. On several parts of the tower are armorial bearings; and from the inverted position of these arms, it would appear that the building, itself ancient, was erected with the materials of one still older. The chapel was rebuilt, and the cemetery enlarged, about 1816. The Wesleyans have a place of worship.[1]

Additional information:

St Mark's, Ninebanks (or West Allen) was built in 1764 as a chapel of ease in Allendale Parish, but in 1767 it became a 'district parish'. The church was rebuilt in 1813 and again in 1871. When the first vicar was appointed in 1867, he was also given charge of Christ Church at Carr Shield.
